Spiritual stagnation staggers senses
Insidious insanity of intermittent information 
Gruesome gorging of gossips
Nauseating nature of narcissistic news

Oppression of other opinions
Flouting false faithfulness freely

Transparent traitors of truth
Hypocritical hype of haters
Evildoers exemplifying egregiousness

Transgressive territorial targets
Investigation into innocent itineraries
Mercilessly manipulating mainstream
Evidence effectively to expressively
Symbolize significant sign of the times

Clever alliterative, acrostic, Susan. Contrary to other comments, I see it as a response to the current news media, rather than its favourite target.

I like the combination of acrostic and alliterations. Very powerful and painting a picture of the very sign of the times. Kai

I haven't had a chance to even read the contest page, but I needn't do so to know that you nailed this! I agree with each line and the alliteration serves to drive each of your 'sad' points home. I'm tempted to go 70s and say this is 'right-on.' If we could change the world ... Poetry hugs ... CayCay
